Greenfield: Merriam & Mirick, 1846. Here is a lovely small volume dedicated to the health of the child, which seems to be quite "modern" in its attitudes on diet and exercise for a mid-nineteenth century volume. Published anonymously, and very scarce (no copies WorldCat or LoC). Very Good (Plus) condition. Dark brown cloth binding with decorative blindstamping. Bright gilt lettering on the front cover. Clean text; 84 pages. The text is especially bright and clear, with spotting confined to the endpapers. The corners are mildly bumped and there is a small area of bubbling on the front cover. An attractive volume. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. First Edition.. Decorative Cloth. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. First Edition.
